POWER OF CONTEXT AND EXCLUSION | THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF HOLLIS BENNETT

-

“The only things that I would say about the week were that no matter who you are, you need to experience it at least once.  There is something surreal about having all your senses that you normally rely on shattered from not being able to gauge distance on the salt flats or hearing a car that is not where it should be because it is going so fast or watching a little black streak pass you and not being able to fathom that a car could go that fast.  All in all an amazing place and an amazing time.”

  1. Been to Speed Weeks 3 times since 2007 co-driving and wrenching a G/GALT 1969 BMW 2002. Currently building a old Honda cb750 to return in 2012.

    The salt is like an old girlfriend whose telephone number you don’t erase, knowing one day you’ll call her back to make one more try at capturing the magic of the first time. Oh, you can leave, but the memories haunt your memory.

    Bennett’s lead-in quote is very accurate. EVERY gearhead needs to go once.

  2. Bonneville. Been there twice. It calls to me like no other. The desire to return is more powerful than any I’ve ever felt and I’ve raced at most of the road courses east of the Mississippi.

    “Need to go” is correct. As in “Need to breath” or “Need to eat”.

    Magical. Mystical. Marvelous.
